JD2 The Beast Tube Notcher

The Beast is the ultimate in hole saw tube notching. Able to easily handle straight notches, offset notches, angled notches, and notches in bends. The weight of the Beast Notcher is 22.7kg (50 lbs.) This helps with the chatter and saves longer on the hole saws. This is the biggest and heaviest hole saw notcher we have come across so far. Its like bolting a milling machine to your bench and is rock solid rigid. The dual clamping system deals with clamping issues when you need to notch near to a bend. The photos show the tube being clamped in the standard v groove but tubes can be clamped anywhere on the plate by moving the clamps arms to the required socket. As with everything from JD Squared in the USA its well thought out and well machined. Lifetime warranty on breakage.

* Capacity of 3/4" to 3" OD
* Straight, Angle, and Offset Notching
* Offset notch up to half the tube diameter.
* Angles up to 50°
* 1" Ground & Polished Stainless Steel Shaft
* Double sealed needle bearings.
* 2 clamps to allow you to notch on a bend.
* Requires an ordinary 1/2" hand drill.
The Beast Notcher Testimonials:
"Over the years, I've bought enough tube notchers to make an anchor for a very large boat. The Beast is the first that lives up to expectations. And it goes beyond that! It shipped on time, is heavily built - almost over-built - goes together well, and makes accurate cuts the first time, every time. The balance of energy built into the design means that once a cut is set, ther is no wandering or shifting. The Beast makes everything stay put right where it is set, so what you see is what you get. The unique design feature of being able to notch in the middle of a curve is worth the price all by itself. I don't know of another notching jig that can do that, or is so well-made. It eliminates tedious mill set-ups in prototyping, cuts scrap completely out (used carefully) and is easier than a heavy mill on the hole saws. The most impressive reccommendation is that it made our shop foreman happy, and the constant complaints about prototypes from the welding department has ceased! The Beast is reasonably priced, given all it can do. No reservations - this one is five stars all the way around." Tracy, Port Clinton, OH

"The name says it all. The BEAST is a true work of art. So simple and soaccurate. Worth every dollar. Dont buy a 200 dollar hole saw. Spend the extra money on this one."  Eric M.
